Annotation: The immortal Seraphina is forced to face the darkness of her past—and risk losing the love of her life—in this gripping conclusion to the Incarnation series. “Fans of the first book will enjoy every roller-coaster spin and twist” (School Library Journal).

Seraphina has been living for centuries, thanks to a special method of alchemy, but only recently has she really felt alive. She’s finally broken free from her controlling boyfriend, Cyrus, and after years of swapping bodies to preserve her immortality, is happily settled into a life worth sticking with. Because in this life, she has Noah.

But Noah might not be as trustworthy as he seems. After he delivers an ominous message that could only come from Cyrus, Sera is worried that her new friends and family will find out her secret. And as her suspicions extend beyond Noah, Sera is forced to wonder about her new friends as well: Could her old coven be disguising themselves right under her nose?

Will Sera have to move to another body—and take another life—or can she find a way to keep what she’s got, forever?

The Incarnation series is created by Alloy Entertainment, producer of bestselling teen and middle grade series including The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, Gossip Girl, The Vampire Diaries, and Pretty Little Liars.

Seraphina Ames is an Incarnate, an immortal changed by alchemy in the 1300s, currently trapped in the body and life of teenager Kailey Morgan. In this sequel to The Alchemy of Forever, Sera must save her loved ones by defeating her former love, Cyrus. While the romance with Kailey's neighbor Noah feels a little forced, Williams keeps readers guessing about Cyrus's new identity.

Reviewed by School Library Journal Reviews (SLJ Reviews 2013 August)

Gr 8 Up—In this sequel to The Alchemy of Forever (S & S, 2012), readers find Seraphina Ames having successfully escaped the smothering clutches of Cyrus for only the second time in her 600-plus years of living as an immortal incarnate. Cyrus has perfected a method of alchemy that allows a soul to swap bodies with any human of choice and is the leader of a coven that Sera has been a part of for the past six centuries. He is also her first love and is insanely jealous, acting out his displeasure in volatile, psychotic ways. Since her escape, she has been living in Berkeley, California, as a member of the Morgan family. By accident she took the body of 16-year-old Kailey Morgan in an unwitting attempt to administer CPR to the real Kailey after a fatal car crash. Living as Kailey has allowed her the opportunity to enjoy the role of a typical teenager for the first time in her life. This idyllic scenario comes to an abrupt end with the appearance of a texted message on Kailey's phone that simply says, "Alchemy." Only one person would send that message-Cyrus-and he must be stopped before he takes away the only people she's ever cared for. As she lures him out of hiding, her paranoia rises and she mistakenly suspects each and every human she encounters as the disguised, revenge-seeking Cyrus. Fans of the first book will enjoy every roller-coaster spin and twist and will not be able to figure out this who-is-it until the screeching conclusion. The menacing aspect of the story's ending leaves enough loose ends for a third installment.—Sabrina Carnesi, Crittenden Middle School, Newport News, VA
